Eli Broad on Education: “The American Public Doesn’t Get It”
Posted by Larry Doyle on May 4, 2010 2:36 PM |
I feel strongly that the very future of our country is directly tied to the quality of our secondary schools. How are we doing? Not very well. The United States has plummeted in terms of educational rankings over the last few decades.
While I have written on this topic periodically, let’s listen to a Bloomberg interview with Eli Broad on U. S. Education. Eli Broad and his wife Edythe are renowned philanthropists. The Broad Foundation does tremendous work. During this brief interview, Broad hits hard on the issues of families, educational management, and the fact that America has become “fat, dumb, happy.”
The truth may hurt, but if our nation wants to make progress we had better face the truth head on. I thank Eli Broad for speaking so bluntly on one of the most important topics impacting our future well being. – LD
